New You Beauty Tip: Use these 3 steps to create a perfectly messy bun.


A low maintenance hairstyle is a great go-to look when getting ready for an evening with the ladies. This quick and easy style doesn’t require clean hair: In fact it looks best with hair that has not been washed for a day or two!


Follow these three simple steps to create the “perfect” messy bun for your next night out.


Low Maintenance Messy Bun How To:

  1. Fasten hair into a loose ponytail using your fingers.
  2. Lightly tease the hair with a comb. Use sections to make it a little easier.
  3. Separate hair into two or three sections and wrap them around the hair tie to create the bun. Fasten with a bobby pin at the ends or just above the ends. The more ends you leave poking out, the messier the look.
